Fintech App

One of the largest online platforms for working capital to help companies, their suppliers, and their customers gain greater control over their cash flow on demand when needed. I worked on developing its products and services by creating Terraform templates and Ansible playbooks for provisioning on cloud platforms such as AWS and GCP. I also developed Azure DevOps and GitHub Actions templates for CI/CD, Helm charts, and Kubernetes manifests. Furthermore, I managed secrets with Vault for application use and generation of temporary credentials, managed central monitoring and logging with Datadog, and developed scripts in Python or Shell to automate sanitary tasks.
